Review: Zevia

A little about Zevia taken from their website:

Why do we do what we do?

The Z team is made up of soda-loving people. We grew up drinking classic soda flavors, and turned away from them for health reasons. So making naturally delicious, healthy versions of the familiar favorites we grew up with, without sugar, is our top priority. We make soda the way it should always have been.
For me, the Zevia story started with my conversion from a “sugar junkie” to a stevia fan. About 11 years ago, I quit sugar cold turkey in an effort to upgrade my health. I thought I was a health-conscious person – I exercised frequently, consumed meat in moderation, and consumed natural and organic products whenever possible. But when I really looked at my diet, I found I was consuming up to 250 grams of sugar per day, between protein shakes, energy bars, juice-based spritzers and other foods and beverages. That’s about 1,000 calories a day, just from sugars.
My wife and I decided we needed to make a change. We began using stevia as a sweetener, and to this day, my family uses only stevia in our household. Stevia has given us an alternative without negative side effects, and has kept us from feeling deprived in our sugar-free lifestyle. It’s had a tremendous impact on how we feel every day, and I’m confident it’s benefitting our long-term health. Read More..

The Heart's Thoughts:

When I first got my soda I was giving the Grapefruit Citrus. My kids loved the taste but I have never liked grapefruit since I was a little kids so for me these where not so great. I sent a quick email to the company and they completely understood everything. He sent me out some other flavors which was very much better for me. I was sent the Cream Soda, Dr. Zevia, & the Cola. These soda are good for people that like to drink diet soda all the time. Me I don't drink a whole lot of diet soda so it was totally different for me. Since I have gotten my Zevia I have brought some from the store because my kids love them.
Here is a little about each one of the flavors I tried out.

Zevia Grapefruit Citrus is the magician of the Zevia flavors. Don’t believe us? Bring a six-pack to your next party and watch it disappear. Some say that Zevia Grapefruit Citrus is the most refreshing of all the Zevia flavors. All would say that the perfectly balanced ruby red grapefruit taste with a punch of lemon and lime will create a sparkly sensation in your mouth. You may give Grapefruit Citrus a try because of its colorful exterior and refreshing name, but it’s the feeling you get when drinking it that will have you coming back for more. That, and the fact that’s it’s actually a healthy diet soda.

Zevia Cola has notes of citrus and spice, the perfect combination for a cola and a rare find in natural soda. When you find out that our stevia cola has zero calories, no sugar and nothing artificial, you may even find yourself reaching for a second can.

Every soda in the Zevia line is a sweet treat, but Zevia Cream Soda is practically a dessert. This natural soda has an incredible deep aroma and luscious taste. It might be even more creamy and delicious than you remember but this is a natural cream soda, the way cream soda should always have been. With hints of vanilla and butter, the flavor in Zevia Cream Soda can satisfy even the greatest sweet tooth. And since it’s zero-calorie and sugar-free, you can make happy taste buds without upsetting the rest of your body.
